  • “Lovely quaint cottage, beautiful ...”

    Lovely quaint cottage, beautiful decoration which is what attracted me. Really well equipped, the small kitchen had everything and more I'd expect from a larger kitchen, loved the dining room decor too - worth trekking up a flight of stairs for! Lounge sofa fab and comfy too! Main bedroom very relaxing and bright. ...

    Lovely quaint cottage, beautiful decoration which is what attracted me. Really well equipped, the small kitchen had everything and more I'd expect from a larger kitchen, loved the dining room decor too - worth trekking up a flight of stairs for! Lounge sofa fab and comfy too! Main bedroom very relaxing and bright. Great to be in such a lovely market town. To be honest the noise of the Indian restaurant and bakers (which I hadn't appreciated would be SO close) meant that there was sometimes noise til midnight and then rattling trollies at 6am. I understand why it hasn't been made clear and I guess it should be obvious being in the centre of town, my naivety. It's great that such a beautiful cottage allows dogs but it was tricky as I had no where to let the dog out for a wee first and last thing, the park nearby was no dogs so it meant a trek down to the river. Maybe make it clear where dogs can go then at least you are informed before booking. Minor tips, a couple more towels and more hooks especially in bathroom, struggled drying them out. Fridge not great, at least rehang the door the other way (they are designed to swap) it was a pain, I needed more freezer space but realise it wasn't in the list. Carpet was so lovely and luxurious everywhere, made me want to have ours redone at home... Except the bedroom which was a shame, but I suspect its because of the cute windows.... But I'm nit-picking, without a dog I'd return, I want a green velvet sofa for Christmas

The property

This Grade II listed stone built townhouse (built c.1650) is set over three floors in a quiet courtyard in the centre of the popular market town of Kirkby Lonsdale.

Within a short walk of all the town’s amenities, this delightful cottage has been recently renovated to provide a stylish holiday home of considerable merit.

Full of character throughout, combining many of the original features, old beams, a stained glass window and feature fireplace with a careful selection of soft furnishings to create a mix of vintage and contemporary to this quaint holiday home.

A perfect blend of the old and the new.

From the courtyard, guests have a choice of entry, the stable doors lead into a modern, well-equipped kitchen area and the external stone staircase leads to the first floor sitting room.

The sitting room gives access to the kitchen and the upper floor dining area and provides a lovely place to sit and relax and take in the many features of the room, such as the old beams and the feature fireplace.

The top floor provides a spacious master bedroom with king size bed overlooked by two Velux windows which provide a lovely light throughout the room.

A second smaller bedroom, with a double bed provides flexible sleeping arrangements and the cottage is just perfect for two couples or a small family to enjoy this wonderful, historic old town.

A modern bathroom with relaxing bath with thermostatic shower over complements the two bedrooms.

Outside, there is a small sitting area, ideal for sitting out with a relaxing drink and taking in the beautiful gardens.

The shared courtyard leads to a ginnel which opens directly onto the high street, a vibrant place of old curiosity shops, award-winning butchers, bakers, traditional old pubs, highly rated restaurants, excellent cafés, sweet shops all providing a great atmosphere to ever popular old market town.

About the location


Kendal 9 miles.

An attractive market town, Kirkby Lonsdale is situated in the heart of the Lune Valley, midway between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. The town was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, and holds a 13th century Market Charter. Nowadays, Thursday is market day, a perfect opportunity for visitors to explore the variety of distinctive shops in the town, or the many 17th and 18th century buildings which still stand. The town was also a finalist for the High Street of the Year Award in 2016. This part of the Lune Valley was a favourite haunt of the artist Turner, and was made famous by Ruskin – his "view" of the valley is still spectacular. The medieval Devil’s Bridge spans the river, and the quiet country lanes are ideal for exploring by car, bike, or even horse. There are three golf courses nearby, as well as tennis, riding, fishing and a variety of riverside and country walks, making the area an ideal location for a break, whatever time of year.
